Spain says it cannot extradite journalist to Turkey

29th Sep 2017

Spain has said that it will not extradite a Turkish-Swedish journalist to Turkey, following his arrest in August on allegations of links to terrorism. Hamza Yalcin has twice been granted asylum by Sweden, where he gained nationality in 2006, and under Spanish law people with refugee status cannot be extradited.
